My boys have been making Santa cookies up the wazzoo. This was a fun cookie for the kids to get involved with.
They had a blast rolling balls of cookie dough, then rolling them through sprinkles and colored sugar pushing kisses into the centers and last but not least dunking them into their glasses of milk.
Chocolate Hugs and Kiss Blossom Cookies
Recipe adapted from HERSHEY'S
1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cupsall-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1bag Hershey hugs/kiss (or other kiss flavor)
Additional sugar/ sprinkles for rolling
Preheat oven to 350.
In your electric mixer cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add in eggs one at a time mixing on medium speed.
Mix in vanilla.
In a medium mixing bowl sift flour, cocoa, and salt together. Slowly add into you electric mixer.
Mix on medium about 30-60 seconds until it is all combined.
Roll you dough into 1 inch balls, then roll in sugar or sprinkles.
Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Let cool for 60 seconds and then push a kiss into the center. Cool on cooling racks.
The white chocolate kisses are fussy if you are not careful they will melt into a pile of goo. For quicker hardening to prevent this I popped mine in the freezer.
